I agree, after intake, chip, TB, exhaust if you don't notice any difference, either your butt dyno isn't working properly, or you've done something seriously wrong (exhaust pipe too large, muffler too much or too little back pressure, intake sucking in hot air, TB plate size too large, crappy chip brand or your engine isn't up to spec.) Don't expect too much from automatics since most HP and TRQ gains are at higher RPM's. Automatic's tend to shift even before peak TRQ or HP is made.
